Left Eye Is Red And Hurts When Blinking?
doctorrnrnI just put on lash extensions, now my left eye is red but only under the cornea. I saw a line like a little bump on the white part under my cornea. The eyes are not swollen and not itchy. It hurts a little when I blink and when I use insto eye drops, it hurts a little. The reaction appears a few hours after installing and only in my left eye, my right eye has no problems at all. Is it possible that a little glue got into my left eye?rnrnIt’s been a week since my left ear really hurt and the lymph node was swollen behind my left ear but now it’s gone. My left head hurts too. Does it have something to do with it or is it just lash extensions?rnrnWhat should I do doctor?rnrnThank you
Lash extensions are currently being popularly done by women to beautify their daily appearance. Although generally not dangerous if done by an expert, there are still risks such as the entry of foreign objects in the eye (fur, glue, tools, etc.), infection due to tools or materials that are not kept clean, or the risk of allergies.
Currently it is difficult to determine whether your eye complaints are caused by lash extensions or other causes. The most appropriate step is to go directly to an ophthalmologist so that the ophthalmologist can see the condition of your eyes with special tools. Red and painful eyes can be caused by:
Presence of a foreign body in the eye
Irritation due to contact with certain chemicals
Cuts or erosions on the cornea
Inflammation of the cornea (keratitis)
Inflammation of the conjunctiva (conjunctivitis)
There are many other reasons. At this time while waiting for the examination it is best not to rub or touch your eyes with unclean hands. Avoid wearing contact lenses and eye makeup until they are declared safe by a doctor.
